What is a Climber?
Are Climbers Safe?
How is a Climber made?
We have been building custom climbers since 1985 and we now have a host of tools and resources that have allowed us to streamline each stage of the process. Digital design software combined with automated milling and fabrication has given Luckey Climbers a distinctive appearance.
We maintain a 12,000 square foot design and fabrication facility in New Haven, CT which houses both our digital design suite and complementary steel fabrication studio. We also have a 5-axis CNC mill, which cuts complex curves into wood panels with a high level of precision. These tools allow us to custom-build each component of every climber. We also use a Vacu-press vacuum forming system and other specialized painting and finishing equipment, to enhance the beauty of the materials and the product. With our considerable warehouse of hand tools we are able to make any and all adjustments necessary for safe shipping. We send our own installation crew to the site so that our team of skilled technicians can erect the steel structure, hang climbing platforms, and net the Climber.
